The discussion threads are pinned to the top. Please join one or all of these group reads. Also check out the opportunities to participate in 2012 challenges. We are reading Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson as a seasonal read for April, May and June.
My mom picked Zeitoun for our whole family to read this year and then discuss at our cottage when we all go in August. What an exceptional read! So eye opening. And that was my first Dave Eggers book. I'll definitely read more. That is one of my favorite reads lately. That, and Unbroken.
Rachel is pregnant. She found out she's having a girl. She's due at the end of summer :)
I thought you didn't read much fiction? Is that book a true story? I did a quick Google search and saw something about faeries...
The Warmth of Other Suns was phenomenal! I'm near the end of the 1,000-page World Without End. O MY GOD. SO GOOD! God, so good. The kind of book you read if only have 30 seconds of free time as you're walking to your mailbox. I LOVE IT!
Hope Finnegan and your family are doing wonderful! :)
Hi Playagirl! I actually am still around, I just haven't updated here in a while.
Thanks so much for your note and your encouragement. I AM still reading. Just try and stop me. LOL
I have an extensive reading wishlist and now and then someone will send me a book. To me it's like sending me to another time and place on a vacation or adventure. I get so totally lost in whatever it is I'm reading. And, btw, I'm reading The Autobiography of Henry VIII now and loving it.
Since Katrina and recently Hurricane Gustav, my life has been a crazy ride. I'm planning on moving back to California soon. Once I'm there, I'll be able to start a book collection again. I will never stop reading. The love of reading is one of the greatest gifts my mother gave to me.
Again, thanks for the note -- be well and happy reading!
i dont knw where u r seein the end of 'the god of small thngs'; it is definitely nt on the last page. u might take teh point where estha and rahel make love to share their pain to be the end...........bt evn there u r nt sure. so tehnovel does xactly wht foster wntd grt novels to do--open a new issue instead of closin one. so its end is the beginning; the last wrd of the novel is 2mrw whch wl nevr die..........and thiis is nt vry diffrnt 4m wht u find in 'the inheritance of loss', 'namesake', 'the hungry tide' n many othr novels n so-called new cinema
